Favorite Wallkill New York Watering Hole has Closed Permanently
Say it ain't so but unfortunately, it seems that it's true. We have lost another great place to enjoy food and a drink in the Hudson Valley. Over the past two years, so many of our favorite places to gather and grab a bite to eat or even an after-work drink with a friend have closed.
Some of our Hudson Valley restaurants chose to because of early retirement, others due to financial strains from COVID, and then there were a few who just couldn't find any staff to work after the pandemic. I am not sure what caused the closure announcement from this latest restaurant but unfortunately, I think customers knew that it was coming.

Elsie's Restaurant Closes for Good
Elsie's, Located on the corner of Route 208 and Route 300 in Wallkill, was truly a neighborhood place to gather for drinks and delicious food. It had been named after Elsie the Cow made famous by Borden Milk Products. The Borden family was heavily involved in building up the hamlet of Wallkill.
Elsie's had delicious food. You could be served at the bar or in the dining room. Even though it was a small place Elsie's was the kind of place you could go to catch up with friends and not feel like everyone was listening or needed your table. It was a great place to meet a friend and unburden the day. Hopefully, something just as magical will open in its place.
